ez peeps, currently using a nifty little freeware compressor called "Rough Rider" for my drums and it's not too bad for a freeware component. however i was wondering if you guys had any tips for some alternative transient shapers or compressors that work well with drums from ur experiences?

I've had a brief encounter with Bittersweet.
I didn't like the fact that there were no attack, sustain or release parameters.

What DAW are you using? The Logic compressor can sound great when used well

Bittersweet seemed to work better if you just use it on a seperate snappy layer of your snare, it robs the snare of body if you put it on the bus and crank it
